Brigham can Read Thoughts of the Heart & Enemies to Sink in Power
Journal of Discourses 10:40; “I say to the enemies of truth that I can tell them the words that are spoken in their private counsels. The very thoughts of their hearts are made known to me. They lay their plans to accomplish such and such a work in so long a time, and then plan a movement to destroy the “Mormons.”…Every time they make a movement against this kingdom they will sink still lower in the scale of national power, while the kingdom of God will rise…”
Matthew 16:18; “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
1 Corinthians 2:11; “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
This is another “two-fer”. So many times I’ve found that in one breath this has been done by the leaders of the Church. How does a Mormon deal with these types of things? Imagine listening to this all those years ago. Do you just accept it or do you take one item of his speech and compare it with the Bible? We’re praying the people of Mormonism today do the latter.
First of all Brigham Young couldn’t know what’s in man’s heart or the thoughts of anyone. This would make God a liar.
Secondly, what nation has sunk in power because it didn’t agree with Mormonism?
